DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Crawford Family and their attorney are feeling encouraged after meeting with officials at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington D.C.
They traveled there to get more information about the investigation and an understanding about why it’s taking so long. It’s now been over 2 years since Crawford was shot and killed by Police inside the Beavercreek Walmart after picking up a BB gun off the store shelf.
37-year-old Angela Williams–a mother of four–also died that day from a heart condition. She collapsed as she ran from the store.]
The meeting lasted for about 4 hours, between the family, their attorney and department officials. This was the second in-person meeting the family has had with the Justice Department.
Now, Attorney Michael Wright is waiting for their final decision.
“They did lead us to believe that there is still the investigation,” Wright said. “And that at some point here in the near future the investigation will close. We left encouraged and hopeful that there will be an indictment of this officer who shot and killed John Crawford.”
Wright anticipates a decision to come down before the new president and their administration take office.
